Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: May 30, 2002
I took this to a luncheon at the office today and it disappeared in a flash. There were many requests for the recipe. This is a fantastic "potluck" dish! Thank you so much.

Turkey Jerky

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2003
TWO days ago my daughter called and asked me to make her some "jerky". Not having any recipes for this, I've been scrambling. Well, today, here it is and with turkey; not the usual beef. Well, AllRecipes, you've done it again. Many thanks!

Strawberry, Kiwi, and Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
I used red wine vinegar and strawberry preserves and added sliced fresh strawberries. I had only Feta cheese on hand so used that in lieu of the bleu cheese. This was a big hit with my 4, 6, and 10 year old grand kids and all 3 said it looked like a "Christmas Salad" with the toasted walnuts and bright red berries and spinach greens. Will definitely do this again. Thanks for another winning recipe!

Quick Chinese-Style Vermicelli (Rice Noodles)

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Soooo simple and delicious. I sometimes add a drop or two of Chinese "hot" oil just to give it a little kick. My 3 grand babies who love anything Chinese, often ask me to "Do the noodles, Mama"! Makes lunchtime a no-brainer. Many thanks!

Kentucky Butter Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
Being from the south, pound cakes were and still are a staple among recipes passed down to family cooks. This one fits that description very nicely, indeed. The cake has a tender texture and is moist even without the butter and sugar mixture. I've done it both ways and no one in my family will turn it down, either way! It's the perfect answer when a friend comes over for a cup of coffee and an afternoon chat! Just make sure you have copies of the cake recipe. They will, no doubt, ask for it! Many thanks for an excellent recipe.

Best Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
Not everybody on the planet is a fan of cilantro OR garlic so this recipe is most welcome. I use it as a layer in my 7 layer dip, made a double batch for the Super Bowl and not a trace was left. Thank you for sharing a simply delicious recipe!

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Deliciously delightful. Being a Tarheel from coastal Carolina, self-rising flour is widely and probably, most popularly used in nearly all baked goods. When I share my recipes, I emphasize the difference in the flours by telling the recipe recipient NOT to use baking powder OR salt if they are using self-rising flour as those ingredients are already present. Now, having said all that, this recipe is wonderful. I've made it as written and it was the hit of a spaghetti dinner. Without the onion powder and Italian seasoning, it's a whole new ballgame. It toasts very nicely to go with that morning cup of coffee. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
Robbie, bless your heart! Can't thank you enough for this truly inspiring recipe. I didn't follow it exactly as written but the results of the changes I did make helped me to create a meal we'll remember for a long time and a dish my husband said I could do "often"! I had 8 chicken thighs thawed and decided to use them instead of breasts. I boiled them and added salt, pepper, one packet of chicken seasoning, one whole shallot and cooked the thighs until tender. I added one undiluted can of cream of chicken soup to stretch the liquid and this pot pie is to cry for! In fact, by adding the extra liquid, there was enough for yet another pie. I quickly made a crust for the extra and will share that one with a neighbor who works and commutes a great distance. You provided the basics and the inspiration to make changes to suit our own personal needs. Can't ask for more than that. Outstanding dish. Thank you so much!!

Pan-Seared Chicken Breasts with Shallots

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
My package of chicken breasts "looked" like there were 4 but there were only 3 humongus sized breasts. Followed recipe exactly. My husband and I split one of the larger breasts and now we have dinner all set for another night. The sauce from the white wine, chicken stock and butter mixed in with the shallots and garlic is absolutely wonderful and I'm no garlic fan. This I will definitely do again! Thanks for sharing.

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
I made these last night for dinner while grandkids are visiting through Easter. Followed the recipe except for "garlic" and added 2 teaspoons of plain ole mustard. Went to get my camera to snap a photo of burgers which was holding a place of honor among all the condiments, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions and when I finally found the camera and got back, 4 of the burgers were already on a bun and being seriously worked on by folks who you'd think had never had a burger! Next time... and there will be a next time! Thanks for sharing.

Sweet and Spicy Pork and Napa Cabbage Stir-Fry with Spicy Noodles

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
This just sounds good but, not having a piece of pork in the house forced me to use chicken tenders which were already thawed. Simply put, outstanding. Loved the sauce; just right!

Exchange Gang Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Most excellently orchestrated! Totally delish. Didn't change a thing except to add tomatoes at the end. So, when are you going to create another masterpiece?

Chicken with Black Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
My hubby is Filipino and all the ingredients in this recipe are readily available in my pantry. I used fresh chicken tenders and followed the remaining ingredients and directions. Hubby loved it and said this recipe was a keeper. Thank you!!

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
I make this in a crock pot also. We love to take it in a large thermos bottle along with some ginger cookies when we go looking for our Christmas tree. It's a warm and fuzzy treat for the tummy on these cold and rainy autumn days! The aroma wafting through the house will make you crazy for a big mug of a fantastic hot cider!!

Apple Harvest Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Most of the time, I have either Fugi or Gala apples on hand and I used those (one each) in this cake in lieu of the Granny Smiths. I also split the sugar between white and brown. I let it sit for an entire day before I let DH know I had a cake baked. I don't know if that helped the flavors meld or not. I do know that it surely did not hurt!! The only thing that really bothers me is that I wanted to take a picture and submit it. The cake was beautiful, absolutely delicious and gone in a flash. DH took half to work where 4 co-workers have asked for the recipe and I shared the remaining half with BF and neighbor. Will I do this one again? You betcha!!

Slow Cooker Carolina BBQ

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Coming from an eastern Tarheel and one who makes the trek from central VA straight down I-95 to Carolina for the sole purpose of purchasing BBQ, this recipe is very true to the real deal and brings back many memories of home. It's the only way to go with homestyle Carolina BBQ! This is as good as it gets.

Crescent Bacon Cheese Tartlet

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Didn't change a thing! They are delicious hot out of the oven and just as good cooled, on a buffet table where they attracted a lot of attention. They make a very pretty presentation. I shared your recipe with several people who were raving over how good they were. Will definitely make this again.

Florida Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
This made 12 PERFECT muffins. I was amazed at how much liquid came off the chopped berries but very happy with the results. These muffins are light and fluffy and delicious. Followed the recipe except for the baking time. Mine were done after 15 minutes! Will gladly add this to my recipe file and look forward to the next batch!

Gingered Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Positively delightful. I added a coarsely chopped red onion to saute with green peppers. Since the meat is thinly sliced, keeping it tender means to not overcook. This was perfect and will absolutely do it again!! Thank you.
